Weekend Wrap-up

This Week: has meant picnics, park lunches, lots of baby smiles, a few cuts and bruises, frozen popsicles, good friends, lots of errands, chats around the fire, phone calls, exciting news, bubble bathes, kiddies past their bedtime, a photo shoot, packages in the mail, a couple shopping splurges, big decisions, and dancing by candlelight.
Next Week: next week means more lunches at the park, more late nights by the fire, a little more being alone, lots of blog and computer work, and quite possible a few movie nights with chinese food:) I'll let you know how that works out.
Most popular post of the week: Understandably the Triple Giveaway post has been the hot spot on the blog this week. Have you entered? :)
A Few Facts:
  • I'm addicted to Jakers scones. they are simply divine.
  • sometimes I wear my pj's the entire day.
  • Baby John has baby dimples! love 'em to death. Have yet to catch those dimples in action however, but I'll keep workin' on it:)
  • Quite possibly planning a road trip to see my sister, just the kiddies and me! Martin will be in NY so he might miss out:) 
Hope you have a good week ahead my lovelies!
xo, Emily
